NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

A 33-year-old Nacogdoches woman was arrested on two counts of abandoning or endangering a child Monday in connection to allegations that she left a 10-year-old child in charge of a 2-year-old at alone at a house "where chemicals and household items were scattered everywhere."

Carrie Jean Savelle, of Nacogdoches, was arrested and charged with two counts of abandoning or endangering a child, which is a state-jail felony. Savelle posted a bail of $7,500 and was released from the Nacogdoches County Jail later that day.

A Nacogdoches County grand jury indicted Savelle on Feb. 22. The indictment states that Savelle allegedly left two children who were in her custody or care at a home in the 3100 block of Durst Street on Feb. 7, exposing them to "an unreasonable risk of harm."

According to the indictment, chemicals and household items were scattered throughout the residence.

The initial report from the Nacogdoches Police Department stated that a complainant told officers he saw Savelle leave two small children at a house by themselves. When the NPD officer made contact with the children, he or she learned the children were 10 and 2 years old respectively.

Savelle allegedly left the 10-year-old in charge of his or her younger sibling while the kids' father was at work. After Child Protective Services got involved in the case, the father was contacted, and he took custody of the two children.
